Inclusive Schools for Special Needs Year 12 Students

At St Lucy’s High School, we believe in the power of inclusion. We are proud to be one of the most inclusive schools for Year 12 students with special needs. Inclusion is at the heart of our philosophy, and we strive to create a sense of belonging and acceptance for all our students. By fostering an inclusive community, we provide opportunities for students to learn from one another, develop empathy, and build lifelong friendships.

Year 12 School Curriculum for Students with Special Needs

In recognition that all students are entitled to participate in and progress through the curriculum, NESA provides year 10 students courses based on Life Skills outcomes and content. These provide options for students with special education needs who cannot access the regular course outcomes, particularly for students with an intellectual disability. The Life Skills Curriculum is designed in such a way that students only have to study ‘some’ of the designated outcomes and content from a particular course.

St Lucy’s year 12 students increasingly undertake their learning in the community with a focus on increasing their independence, preparation for work (where appropriate) and recreational options and development of hobbies.  St Lucy’s also has a Post School Options Co-ordinator who works with students and their families to create pathways into post-school employment settings and lifestyle opportunities. Students completing Year 12 at St Lucy’s will be eligible for a Higher School Certificate. They will not be awarded an ATAR.

How does St Lucy’s balance our classes to get the best out of Students

Selecting students based on their needs and the balance of the class is an important aspect of creating a successful learning environment at St Lucy’s. It is important that we take into consideration the unique learning needs of each student, as well as the overall balance of the class in terms of ability levels, personalities, and interests.

Ensuring that the class is balanced and diverse can help promote inclusivity and improve the overall learning experience for all students. Additionally, selecting students based on their specific needs can help provide more personalised attention and support, ultimately resulting in better academic outcomes. For this reason we have an extensive process at St Lucy’s and we not only take into consideration the needs of your child but also the needs of the year group, when considering enrolment.

Our comprehensive curriculum, combined with individualised support, helps students achieve their academic and personal goals.
